Prior Authorization

Prior authorization is foundational to health plans, as it helps ensure members receive safe, clinically appropriate and evidence-based care that enhances their health.



The Issue of Mandates

Health care mandates force Oklahoma’s health plans into a one-size-fits-all approach to health care, driving up costs and eliminating the flexibility to choose affordable coverage.



Health Plans 101

Health plans help to offset the rising costs of health care through insurance, allowing Oklahomans to receive the services and support they need to live full and healthy lives.

White Bagging

To keep the costs of prescription drugs affordable, health plans leverage low-cost pharmacies to safely deliver drugs to a patient’s provider to be administered called “white bagging.”



Oklahoma MCO Values

OAHP has identified three core values to ensure a Medicaid delivery model that cares for the whole person, drives healthier outcomes and provides quality care: statewide, risk-based and a level playing field.
